The latest over-the-top mommy nail trend is here, and it might make you spit out your coffee. Moms are now doing baby bottle-themed manicures, complete with real milk inside.
A Moscow, Russia, nail artist invented the technique. The artist, @nail_sunny, posted a tutorial video on Instagram, which shows her using acrylic to create a baby bottle shape on a set of nails, then injecting each nail with good old-fashioned milk.
The video also demonstrates how the nails work. To show that the milk is actually accessible, @nail_sunny pierces the bottle’s nipple with something sharp. White liquid then drips out.
Needless to say, people were stunned, impressed, and somewhat disgusted all at the same time.
“This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen,” one commenter wrote.
Others joked about how, with this manicure, their own babies would never have to go hungry. I think we already have plenty of solutions for that, though. Like breastfeeding. And actual bottles.
Is there even enough milk in this manicure to feed a baby? If so, is it hygienic? My brain hurts.
